      I like the idea, but I think it would be better with chocolate cake. It was a little dry and the mint overbearing. I'd use less mint extract in the cake batter.

      I seen this on the Betty Crocker website last week and I end of making it that day so I could bring it to work the next day. It was gone. It is so good, to me it taste just like the Andes Mint (which I love). This is a keeper. I LOVE THIS CAKE. And it's so pretty.

      I followed this recipe to a T and it was utterly inedible. The only redeeming thing was i plopped on a big scoop of vanilala ice cream to lessen the mint flavor. i t was extremely overpowering mint-wise. I kow I couldn';t have used too much because I had less that 1 teasoon in the bottle. We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE GS thin mints and mint ice cream so I thought for sure this would be great. I dished this out to our guests and threw the rest away. my husband made me promise never to make it again.
